What are the dental goals for treating elderly patients with Dementia and Alzheimer’s?
When treating patients with Dementia, our most important goal is to make sure that the patient remains comfortable at all times. Patients with Dementia can easily become fearful or frustrated and can display a wide array of emotions. We are patient and reassuring, and we understand the stress that a dental visit can put on a patient with Dementia, and on the caregivers.
Our other key goals are to make sure that our patients are not in pain, and that they are able to eat comfortably.
